View Full Version : iPhone/iPod Touch Games Worth A Look

Heyhey. I know there are people out there with iPhones, or iPod Touches like myself, and I know there are games on them, and hell, even some have multiplayer. Are there any ones I should be looking at? I keep looking all around for some good place to tell me this kind of thing, and completely failing, so I turn to you, Talking Time.

If nothing else, though, I have a suggestion for you all. I find myself playing this (http://www.aurorafeint.com) every time I have a spare moment and my Ipod about, which is mostly all the time in between classes and all kinds of times. The Beginning is a really great and free Tetris Attack clone, and I've been enjoying myself quite a bit. As such, when they came out with part two, for $8, I did my part and bought it, since I've gotten all kinds of enjoyment out of the free game, and felt they deserved money.
What I want to know, though, is if anyone else is playing Beginning or The Arena? If you paid the money, awesome and I would like to fight you, but if not, care to party up? I believe I can party with people who just have the free version. I have yet to understand exactly what that does, and I would like to figure it out, honestly.

On an additional note, I also keep looking about for information on this 1112 (http://www.1112game.com) thing, as an episodic adventure game is something I can almost always get behind, but I haven't heard a whole lot about it.

Okay, that was about three separate things, but hey, that's how my brain works. Thoughts?

Rogue was just released the other day, and it's free. You can't argue with free.

A fellow I know wrote an iPhone game called Trism. If I had an iPhone it would be the first game I'd pick up -- combine tilt-sensing for reorienting gravity, color matching a la Bejewelled, a deep scoring system, and a full-featured puzzle mode and worldwide achievements list.

To me that sounds like $5 well spent. But I won't put $500 on an iPhone so -- so it goes :)

I'm still sour on Apple charging early iPod Touch adopters for the store-enabled firmware. Is it worth the $10?
